AP II and AirNav Indonesia Modernize National Aviation, Collaborating ACDM with ATFM for Efficiency

16 Sep 2021

Indonesia's airport management and navigation services increasingly meet global standards

Jakarta - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) and Perum, the Indonesian Aviation Navigation Service Provider (AirNav Indonesia) collaborated in modernizing the national aviation sector.

The two companies will synergize Airport Collaborative Decision Making (ACDM) and Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) into a single mobile platform called Pocket ACDM.

AP II currently operates the Airport Operation Control Center (AOCC) which is equipped with the latest technology. AOCC operations are strengthened by the implementation of Airport Collaborative Decision Making (ACDM) as a system that accommodates information-based cooperation from all stakeholders, namely airport operators, airlines, ground handling, air traffic services and other supporting partners.

Through ACDM, stakeholders can easily coordinate according to real time conditions to determine the use of check-in counters, boarding lounges, departure gates, garbarata, arrival gates, baggage conveyor belts, equipment on the apron, and so on.

Meanwhile, AirNav Indonesia as the sole operator of flight navigation services in the country operates the Indonesia Modern Air Navigation System (IMANS) supported by Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) to support flight efficiency, especially at airports and ensure the fulfillment of estimated departure times (ETD) and estimated time of arrival (ETA).

President Director of AP II Muhammad Awaluddin said the synergy between ACDM and ATFM was an effort to accelerate the modernization of airport and aviation management.

“The ACDM and ATFM synergy process to be accessible in Pocket ACDM is being carried out by AP II and AirNav Indonesia. On September 15, 2021, we submitted the ACDM Manual Document to AirNav Indonesia for review and discussion so that the synergy process can run smoothly. The implementation of the synergy for the first phase is carried out at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, which is the largest and busiest airport in Indonesia," explained President Director of AP II Muhammad Awaluddin.

The ACDM Manual Documents were submitted directly to the President Director of AirNav Indonesia, Pramintohadi Sukarno, consisting of Implementation Manual Documents, Implementation Guidelines Documents and Implementation Procedures Documents.

Muhammad Awaluddin added, "The synergy between ACDM and ATFM creates an integrated arrangement at the passenger terminal and on the air side based on data informed by each stakeholder. The goal is to achieve operational efficiency, on-time performance (OTP) flights, and what is equally important is that stakeholders can perform predictability in order to predict and anticipate future operations so as to ensure everything runs smoothly.”

In line with this, the competitiveness of the national aviation sector can be further increased.

"The competitiveness of the national aviation sector at the global level is getting better by increasingly meeting global standards, and this is a capital in supporting the Indonesian economy," said Muhammad Awaluddin.

Furthermore, Muhammad Awaluddin said, AP II and AirNav Indonesia's steps to create efficiency and increase competitiveness are expected to support the recovery of the aviation sector affected by the pandemic.

President Director of AirNav Indonesia Mohamad Pramintohadi Sukarno said that now is the right moment to synergize the ACDM and ATFM systems.

“AP II's progress is very significant. This is the time to synchronize the system between the systems in AP II and AirNav Indonesia," said Mohamad Pramintohadi Sukarno.

In the ACDM and ATFM integration process, AirNav Indonesia underlined the need for common perception, harmonization of terminology, harmonization of operating concepts, standardization of data exchanged, and interfacing systems.

Mohamad Pramintohadi Sukarno said AirNav Indonesia is ready to implement this integration not only at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, but also at other airports managed by AP II.

The Ministry of Transportation also provides support for the implementation of ACDM at AP II airport.

The Director General of Civil Aviation at the Ministry of Transportation Novie Riyanto in his letter to AP II stated that the ACDM manual and guidelines that had been prepared by AP II could be used as a guide by stakeholders.

"The Directorate General of Civil Aviation provides support for the implementation of Airport Collaborative Decision Making [ACDM] to be implemented at PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) airports," explained the Director General of Civil Aviation in his letter.

ACDM and ATFM synergies at AP II airports have the spirit of digitization to simplify the departure and arrival processes, while increasing security, safety and efficiency.
